Nobody is talkin about the racist kid from UT?

Former Longhorns lineman apologizes for racial slur after Obama wins

Updated: November 6, 2008, 8:35 PM ET

AUSTIN, Texas -- Former Texas backup lineman Buck Burnette apologized Thursday for posting a racial slur on his Facebook page about Barack Obama being elected president.

Burnette, a sophomore who played in seven games this season, left the No. 5 Longhorns on Wednesday. The team said Burnette violated team rules but would not elaborate.

His Facebook page had been deleted Thursday.

In a statement sent to The Associated Press, Burnette said he "made a terrible decision" to post a text message he received about Obama's victory that contained a racial slur.

"That lack of judgment on my part has had devastating consequences," the statement read. "Those that know me understand that this is not a true reflection of my character. I sincerely apologize to everyone that I have offended. I have had the opportunity to apologize to my teammates and coaches and have received support from many of them in return."

Burnette started one game at center in 2007 as a redshirt freshman and was a high school star at Wimberley High School, near Austin.

Backup or not, the kid is a nuckle head. I also give props to Mack for doing this so quickly.

is it really racist when the thing you posted isn't your own? Either way, bonehead thing to do. Backup? Hell, wasn't he a center? If so, not only a backup, but third string behind a TRUE freshman David Snow.


I often wonder what goes through kids minds when they think "i'm going to do ___"

Probably not talked about on here because, as we saw after the election, 75% of people on here believe that tripe.
